Years of thrifting, and I've never actually seen the Pyrex teardrop mixing bowls in person...until today. I nearly knocked a woman over lunging for a 4 qt spring daisy cinderella bowl, and when I got there, I saw these two lovelies (for an unbelievable $1.99 and $2.99) hiding right behind it (I searched everywhere for the little mini, but to no avail)! I snatched them all up, along with matching white pie and cake plates. Oh happy day! It was quite serendipitous as I'd been drooling over a set of Fire King delphite teardrop bowls at an antique store earlier in the day, but at $95 there was no way they'd ever be mine.
I have to admit that I wanted the scold the former owner of the teardrops for carelessly scratching the insides with utensils, but I couldn't stay mad for long since she did donate them to Goodwill for me to find (thank you). And they're just so cool that I can live with a few scratches - plus now I won't feel guilty for using them.
My last find of the day was Fire King, not Pyrex, but the dappled blue (flecked with white) was too cute to pass up.
